No matter how you spell it Bed & Breakfast, Bed and breakfast, B and B, B & B, BnB or BB, and even sometimes B&B inns, B&B are an American version of the original European bed & breakfasts and guest houses where the innkeeper would let available rooms with a breakfast offered the next morning to travelers to earn a secondary income. B & Bs vary from lavish palatial homes and mansions to converted urban dwellings to working farm homes to inexpensive rooms close to hunting or fishing retreats.
Unlike a hotel, every true B&B is the inn proprietor's home. And for this reason, every Bed and Breakfast will have its own unique character. The BnB furnishings and decorating will be ditinctive and reflect the owners tastes.
Bed & Breakfasts are better value than a a hotel and motel. You will get a comfortable, often luxury, individually-decorated room, private bath, a hearty breakfast each day of your stay, relaxed environment to meet other guest travelers, interesting local history, and time to explore the interesting local areas.
Vermont is well-known for its ubiquitous Bed & Breakfasts. Quaint and charming homes that offer fancy lodging filled with interesting art, paintings and antiques, vintage-style bedrooms some with canopy beds fit for a king and queen, spacious walk-in closets, and private fireplaces and whirlpool baths and offer luscious, hearty Vermont breakfasts. You’ll find charming common rooms decorated with antiques and vintage furnishings, barns converted into gorgeous banquet halls, beautiful gardens, and proprietors who will heartily greet and help make your stay a memorable one.
Today's B&Bs now reflect the travelers need for modern conveniences. The best B&B offer televisions, telephone service, and free wireless Internet service. For added convenience look for B and Bs with unique restaurants on premises. There is nothing more refreshing after a long day of travel than a short walk downstairs to enjoy a cocktail and sumptuous and unique dinner.
